Why Fresh Air is so Important

Why Fresh Air is so Important

With the world’s current climate, social distancing and self-isolation are more important than ever. So, unfortunately all of us will be spending a lot more time inside our homes. BUT we also know how important it is to keep our mind and body healthy by getting some crisp, fresh air.

Getting outside (responsibly) for a walk, a run or just having a break from the indoors can be so beneficial for your mental and psychical health.

Here are our top 3 reasons why you should get out and get some fresh air:

1) More Energy and a Sharper Mind

Being able to go for a walk or a run is a great way to break up the day. Once you’ve been out, you’ll find your energy levels are up and your concentration levels will have improved. It’s said that more oxygen leads to greater brain functioning!

2) A Change of Scene

Staring at a computer or television screen all day isn’t as fun as it sounds! Getting out and having a change of scenery can help increase your motivation and productivity levels.

3) Fresh Air makes you Happier

Research has found links between increasing oxygen levels and the increase in serotonin (the happy hormone)! Positive emotions have been associated with being outside and getting fresh air.

Even if you’re struggling to go for a wonder round your local area, make sure you’re keeping windows open, relaxing in your garden and even just having breaks to keep your mind and body healthy!
